Religious Freedom

According to article 18 in United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights, "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion".

The US was among the 48 countries who signed the UDHR in 1948, but "the Universal Declaration of Human Rights itself is not a document that is legally binding. Countries that have signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights cannot be held legally responsible if they break their promise to protect and preserve human rights and freedoms. The Declaration is a standard for countries to follow. It expresses the basic principles and ideals that the world holds for human rights."
